Refinishing old wood floors to their earlier elegance always gives a little more happiness to the Dan’s Floor Store crew when we are working with historically significant homes. We are helping to preserve our Country’s architectural history.
Dan’s Floor store has restored old wood floors in homes in historic St. Augustine, and for this project, we were refinishing wood floors in the historic Springfield community of Jacksonville, Florida.
Actually, the Springfield Historic District is a neighborhood located to the north of downtown Jacksonville. Established in 1869, Springfield is one of only three federally designated historic districts in Jacksonville, the other historic districts being Riverside/Avondale and Old Ortega.
Dan’s Floor Store refinished old face nailed solid Quarter Sawn solid White Oak wood floors (downstairs) and solid Heart Pine wood floors (upstairs).
Here are some photos of the condition of these old wood floors and stairs when we arrived at the client’s home.
We used the buffer before coating and in between coats of finish to abrade the wood flooring for proper bonding. Stair treads need to be edged twice, scraped and then palm sanded prior to coating.
Here you can see some edger work on Quarter Sawn White Oak wood flooring in the kitchen. We use the radiator edger to get under cabinets, back to the toe kicks.
And these photos show the refinished wood floors. We took some of the photos with the same views as we took the “before” photos above, so you can see how good these restored floors look now.
